Well, i guess overwatch team with their briliant mind have already thought about this… but… why not say that , they might see right?
Experimental card is a really huge thing for overwatch, but as we all have seen it is kind of the same as workshop mode in overwatch, but a workshop done by the devs of overwatch and not the community.
but blizzard wanting people to test echo that fantastic hero… and making her just acessable trough ptr is not really a good thing, and we search for solutions as experimental card.
And i know, that the experimental card cant put a full hero inside it, since it is like workshop… but what about Uploading echo in the overwatch live servers, and just block her usage in all modes less experimental card?
that way, echo was not “released” already, people in all plataforms would be able to test her in the experimental card (Because there would be the unique place where she would be available to pick), and people could have a big array of people testing her, and then nerfs and buffs could be a lot easier too…
i guess that if we see things that way (uploading echo to live games, but restricting her only to experimental card & aim range training) would make a lot more sense… and i see no reason to the game not being able to handle it, since it would be Like hero pools… She would be banned everywhere, less in experimental card and aim training…
I guess that my post actually helps or even that i can at least get an answer of why it wouldnt work.
Since hero pools already work, i see no reason for that not being able to happen.
See ya, Sky
